    I have a pair of bookshelf speakers that I'd like to listen to in the next room and am wondering how I should go about doing this. The signal to the bookshelf speakers seems just fine as they work in the "Surround Back" configuration. I need help getting the binding posts to work as a Zone 2 output.
    TIA,
    Todd

    Todd - doesn't it have instructions in the manual? Although I know the Denon manuals aren't the most user friendly ones out there!

    There's quite a few Denon 3805 owners out there who should be able to help, although I don't think that it's difficult to do.

    RTFM, I live by that being in the computer field. Well, I tried to follow the manual to the best of my ability. I thought I had the setting changed, out of the box the wire posts come setup as Back Surrounds, but no luck. :-( I see a lot of discussion on the 3805 and that's why I posted to this board.
    Thanks,
    todd

    You need to access the Main Setup Menu and the Power Amp Assignment feature. Change this from Surround Back to Multizone/Room. The rest you'll have to get from the manual as it's been ages since I tried this on my old 3801! LOL.

    Just bear in mind you lose Dolby EX/DTS ES etc capability so you can only have 5.1 in the main room.

    I just don't get it. I'm doing what Jase listed already but still nothing. I'll check connections and hopefully get things done soon.

    Make sure your speakers are connected properly and the polarity is right. If that doesn't work maybe something is busted? :confused:

    I got the info on another board. You need to turn the Zone 2 volume up independently of the main volume via the remote. By default it's set a -70db, not a great listening level. :) Thanks for the input!
    Cheers,
    Todd
